…how Andy Rooney spent the minutes outside of 60 Minutes?

The legendary commentator died Friday from post-surgery complications. He was 92.

His words, his attitude, his I'll-say-whatever-I believe voice gave us perspective and always something to think about after the second hand stopped.  He earned three Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award and a Writers' Guild of America award. He was a syndicated newspaper columnist.

He reminded me of a crabby uncle who in any moment would offer advice, kindness or a little extra cash should you need it.

His words remain his legacy - no wondering about that.
